Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2005
Draft, at Craft Bar, Athens, Greece. </br> Black with a foaming dark brown head. This looks and smells all the world like a stout, only the texture and palate are more consistent with that of a larger. Rich coffee, tobacco and bridle leather aroma. Really nice beer to finish on.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Pours a dark, dark brown out of the bottle with a small, rocky tan head that hung around for a little while with no lacing. The smell is dominated by roasted malts with hints of both coffee and smoke. The taste is much sweeter than the aroma would indicate and has a sizable caramel malt backbone with a noticeable smoky roasted character. Mouthfeel is creamy but with strong carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer though I would put it a notch below the smoked lager from Craft.

Scopey (12722) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2011
Keg at Craft Brewery, Athens. It pours darkest brown, with a thick light tan head. The nose is caramel, toffee, latte and light roasted malt. The taste is chocolate, caramel, lactose, filter coffee, light roasted malt and a touch of liquorice. Medium body, fine carbonation, foamy mouth-feel and good balance. Tasty and very easy drinking.
